Brain-Building Support For Your Child Through The Basics

The Basics Guilford aims to help every family help every child reach their full potential through five science-based principles for caregivers of children birth to age 3. The Basics are powerful tools and easy to use during normal routines. They are:

1) Maximize Love, Manage Stress at home, 2) Count, Group, and Compare to develop early math skills, 3) Read and Discuss Stories, 4) Explore Through Movement and Play, and 5) Talk, Sing, and Point. To get started with The Basics, visit us online at and sign up for our weekly email to get easy tips for caregivers.


Walk Amongst the Prehistoric at the Dino & Dragon Stroll

Dino & Dragon Stroll is the only North American tour that lets you walk-thru and get up close to life-like and life-size dinosaurs AND dragons. This must-see event features the LARGEST creatures touring the country with massive dinosaurs and dragons, some standing over 28 feet tall and spanning over 60 feet long. Creatures feature moving heads, necks, tails, wings, eyes and mouths that open and close, along with breathing movements, synchronized sounds and roars that make them look alive!
